M C Mary Kom carries Olympic Gold hope for India

Five time world champion MC Mary Kom, the woman boxer form Manipur, India will will face Poland’s Karolina Michalczuk – a former bantamweight (54kg) world champion – in her pre-quarterfinal bout tomorrow at 1830hrs (IST) in London Olympics 2012.

While India has so far won two medals ( one Silver and one Bronze), hope of India winning a gold now rests on the Manipur Boxer, mother of two.

The Indian, who was made the face of International Boxing Association’s campaign to get women’s boxing included in Olympics, needs to win just two bouts to be assured of a medal and first up for her is Michalczuk.

We wish all the best make Manipur and North East India proud by winning Olympic Gold for the country!
